A Solo Hike in the Northwoods

I got the urge to go exploring the other day so I packed up my things and started driving. I ended up at this little lake in northern Wisconsin which I've been to a few times before. It's one of my go-to places because it's usually quiet and there's nobody ever there....

Finding Swans at Spring Creek State Wildlife Area

Earlier this spring when I was researching good spots to go birdwatching, I came across Spring Creek State Wildlife Area. The WI DNR website states that trumpeter swans are common inhabitants of this 1,000-acre property so I just had to go check it out myself! It was...

A Manitowish Waters Getaway at Alderwood Resort

Nestled in the heart of northern Wisconsin sits The Brick House – a beautifully immaculate colonial-style rental home on the shores of Alder Lake, part of Manitowish Waters Chain of 10 Lakes.

Mineral Point Wisconsin

If someone were to have dropped me off in the middle of Mineral Point, Wisconsin without any clue as to where I was, my first guess might've been an English village. With its charming architecture and streets that come together at odd angles, I felt like I had stepped...

This Super Secret Natural Area Turns into a Winter Wonderland

It's been quite the unusual winter this year in Wisconsin. Usually, at this point, we have a few feet of snow on the ground but right now, the front yard has just a dusting. So the other day, when southern Wisconsin was calling for a snowstorm with up to a foot of...

A Wintry Weekend in the Northwoods

Even though I currently live in central Wisconsin, most of my weekends are spent up in the northern part of the state where Sean lives. One of my favorite things about northern Wisconsin is that within minutes, we can be either on the lake or in the woods.

24 Hours in Door County

Early last week, I opened my planner and realized that I didn't have any plans for the upcoming weekend. So in the spur of the moment, I asked Sean if he wanted to take an overnight trip to Door County and within an hour, I had the hotel booked! We hadn't been to Door...
